Seems to be a virus, wipes out most internet bandwidth.
I never install it yet my Anti Virus found it hidden in my system, I don't like that intrusion at all!

Vipre catches it as potentially unwanted. Something is slowing my bandwidth down quite a lot. Bud reports the same. I'm going to remove it and see what happens
Causes my computer to crash, got many blue screens since I installed it and after I removed it they were gone
I keep getting pop ups from PPTV. Then I found 200 over unknown videos in my hard drive. I was having trouble closing my windows and applications. The system slowed down tremendously.
no idea. seems to have entered in firewall settings. Octoshape main program was seen finding place in firewall setting as "allow" This was unchecked but not deleted . want more details to allow or delete.
It is a process which are used by media streaming applications

When I installed the DirecTV player this was installed as well. Based on the description it is used by DirecTV player to "increases the quality and stability of video streams". Check C:\Users\ YOURNAME \AppDate\Roaming\Octoshape and look at the date. Then see if you installed a streaming media player that day. If so it's clean.

Best practices for resolving OctoshapeClient issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with OctoshapeClient. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
